London: England cricketer Adam Hollioake's daughter Bennaya was born in Perth, Australia, on Saturday. Surrey captain Hollioake has not played for his county this season following the death of his brother, team-mate and England all-rounder Ben in a car accident in March.

Following the accident in Western Australia, where the Hollioake brothers were spending time with their family, it was announced Adam would not start the new English season and would instead stay in Perth. Bennaya - named in memory of Ben and his girlfriend Janaya who was seriously injured in the accident - was born on Saturday morning, weighing 7lb 10oz. Wife Sherryn and daughter are reportedly doing well, and the trio are expected to return to Britain in a week or so.
